Well after 4 years of owning my Garmin Nuvi 1200 I have decided that I'm tired of the GPS not knowing the new streets and turn offs

Getting new Garmin map pack that was released recently (R350)

For those interested there is info on it here

And here I am trying to find an old one that knows the original names of streets in Durban! :p

My new pack only knows the new names and it's bloody frustrating as the locals don't know the new names, so you get an address with the old name and Garmin says that it doesn't exist!
3 Outbacks in a row :D

Yep we are screwed on both ends
get new maps and the garmin can route you via the new highways and turn offs and new streets

but it can't find the old names so you can't really go there anyway

can almost not have GPS :)
